The Incredible Dr. Pol National Geographic Wild

In honor of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week (November 5th-11th), star of National Geographic Wild’s #1 series,  Dr. Jan Pol from The Incredible Dr. Pol took time from his busy schedule to offer our readers his expertise on spaying and neutering, as well as answer some burning questions we had about him, his family and the show. We’re HUGE fans of the show and so excited to get the opportunity to interview him as well as help spread the word about the importance of spaying and neutering all pets to help reduce the number of unwanted animals who end up in shelters through no fault of their own.

10 Questions with The Incredible Dr. Pol

1) We know that you’re helping to spread the word about reducing the homeless pet population as part of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.  What age should pets be spayed or neutered?  Is it ever too early?
We spay and neuter pets at 4 months.  This is the ideal age for us.  I know some places do it earlier, but I like to do it at 16 weeks.

2) Are there other benefits to spaying and neutering pets besides reducing the homeless animal population/overcrowding in shelters?
Yes.  It reduces the incidence of mammary tumors, uterus infections and in males the prostrate problems later in life. [Read more…]

President Obama and Bo the First Dog

First up in the lineup of famous dads and their dogs: President Obama and the First Dog, Bo! Bo is a Portuguese Water Dog. This fur kid joined the Obama family in the White House in 2009. We heard that Bo gets to hang out with his papa in the Oval Office and goes with the family on vacations…even to Hawaii! President Obama sounds like a wonderful Woof Woof Papa to us!

 

John Legend with his dog

 The coolest musical dad might just be John Legend. He has 2 dogs: an English Bulldog named Puddy, and French Bulldog named Pippa. He sure knows how to spoil his pups and was recently snapped by the pup-arazzi having brunch with his fur kids!

 

Mark Zuckerberg and his Puli pup, Beast

Representing the social media dads is Mark Zuckerberg seen here with his Puli pup, Beast. Mark made sure that HIS fur kid was included in his recent wedding ceremony – Beast walked Mark’s wife Priscilla Chan down the aisle! This doggy daddy also lets Beast have his own Facebook page!

 There is no shortage of hot dads with dogs and we happen to have a crush on Ryan Gosling. He took his mutt George with him on the Jimmy Fallon Show, and we heard he even got kicked out of yoga for taking George there, too! Silly Papa!

 

Bob Barker animal rights activist

Everyone knows Bob Barker as the beloved host of the TV Game Show, The Price is Right, but did you know that this dog dad is also an avid animal rights activist? Not only has he raised and cared for his own dogs, but Papa Barker donated more than $2 Million of his own money to animal causes! We think that makes him PAW-tastic!
